Technology and Jewish Education: A Revolution in the Making

I'm proud to have played a part in this exciting new venture by JESNA - the best Jewish education think tank going.

Introducing:"Technology and Jewish Education: A Revolution in the Making."

JESNA's Lippman Kanfer Institute would like to invite you to the launch of a new website www.jesna.org/je3, devoted to the growing impact of technology on Jewish learning and teaching.

The JE3 (Jewish Education 3.0) website grows out of a year-long process in which thought leaders, visionaries, and activists in the burgeoning world of Jewish educational technology met together both face-to-face and virtually to share ideas about the future of Jewish education in the age of Google, Facebook, Twitter, web 2.0, and beyond. Contributors to the site include individuals like My Jewish Learning.com's Daniel Septimus; Rabbi and author of thelordismyshepard.com: Seeking God in Cyberspace Joshua Hammerman; Jewish Television Network founder and Los Angeles Jewish Federation CEO Jay Sanderson, and Darim Online founder Lisa Colton. Together with more than a dozen of these leaders, we have put together in JE3 the first digital, open-source publication for the field of Jewish education on technology.

Here, you will find:

A "core narrative" exploring the far-reaching implications of new communication technologies for how we think about and implement Jewish education

Articles from our contributors.

A blog for both technology news and resources.

A feed from the #Jed21 discussion on Twitter.Plus, a featured video section and core narrative on our homepage.
